Sail Training Ireland has been shortlisted for the Charity Impact Awards 2019 which are run by The Wheel, the national association of community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises.
As part of the next step there is a public vote accounting for one third of the total.
Friends of Sail Training Ireland are asked to follow the link to the Charity Impact Awards website and submit their vote: select Browse Entries, then Sail Training Ireland, Learn More and then Vote. You will then receive an email to verify your vote.
Sail Training Ireland has also launched the first edition of its new newsletter, Tall Ships And Friendships, which is now available online.
The newsletter is hoped to become a forum for everything sail training, and this inaugural edition features reflections from some of those who embarked on its tall ship sail training voyages over the past year.
Be sure to visit the Sail Training Ireland website in January for details of next year’s sail training voyages — a number of Transition Year voyages associated with Gaisce/The President’s Award are detailed in the newsletter.
